Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2005-209
2005-03-12
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Product     : Fedora Core 3
Name        : at
Version     : 3.1.8                      
Release     : 68_FC3                  
Summary     : Job spooling tools.
Description :
At and batch read commands from standard input or from a specified
file. At allows you to specify that a command will be run at a
particular time. Batch will execute commands when the system load
levels drop to a particular level. Both commands use /bin/sh.

You should install the at package if you need a utility for
time-oriented job control. Note: If it is a recurring job that will
need to be repeated at the same time every day/week, etc. you should
use crontab instead.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

o Added check in at(1) to verify if atd PAM authentication will succeed;
   Job submission will be denied if atd PAM authentication fails.
 o Fixed PAM authentication in atd (bug 150131).

NOTE: the previous advisory for atd-3.1.8-68_FC3 had the wrong 
advisory ID (FEDORA-2005-208) which was for bind-9.2.5-1_FC3 .
Hence this advisory is being re-sent with the correct advisory
id:
FEDORA-2005-209
